Description:

Apper is the KDE interface for PackageKit (aka KPackageKit)

Apper is able to manage packages, applications and updates in a cross-distribution way thanks to the PackageKit project. Providing Linux users a single application that they can learn and use in whatever distribution they are.

Hope you enjoy Apper, and please report bugs, make wishes so we can improve this application.

BUGS goes to bugs.kde.org

-----------------------------------------------------
IMPORTANT:
Apper itself can do nothing without PackageKit.
So have it installed before.
-----------------------------------------------------

INSTALLATION

Well now that you decide to install it. Be careful :D no warranty is given..

 'exclusive lock' error

 
 by quarkslot on: Apr 26 2009
 
Score 50%

I've just done a clean install of Kubuntu 9.04 and thought I'd try KPackageKit.

The interface is clean and I installed a software package without any trouble.

I then stacked up several packages to install at once but there was an installation error with sun-java6. I de-selected sun-java6 and tried again but KPackageKit now reports "Cannot get the exclusive lock on the packaging backend. Please close any other legacy packaging tools that may be open."

However I haven't used any other packaging tools on this system so it seems that KPackageKit locked itself out when it hit the error. I tried a reboot but no change.

Do you know how I can clear the lock?

Thanks.

Running 'sudo dpkg --configure -a' fixed this problem by completing the configuration of the packages which had been downloaded but not installed.

The problem is that you backend is not able to install some kinds of packages, (blame your distro..) :P

 Proxy

Is there any way to make KPackageKit download the packages via the proxy I have to use? I can't find any setting that is respected.

Here is the pertaining bug report for Kubuntu Jaunty: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/kpackagekit/+bug/347982

This sounds very promising, thanks for your work!

Now I'd only need a package for jaunty. I hope soon somebody will occupy themselves with it...

 Don't like the search

 
 by Sxeptomaniac on: Jul 24 2009
 
Score 50%

I'm using version 0.4.0 on Kubuntu 9.04 Jaunty and I really dislike the search function. I don't understand why the search defaults to using OR operators instead of AND. Every word I add to a search increases the number of results, rather than narrowing them. This makes it nearly impossible to find a package if I don't know its name or a fairly unique word for what I want.

It's your distro backend fault, complain there.

No problem it's hard to complain on something you don't know the design, it's more obvious to think KPackageKit has the problem.
What normally happens is that if you can reproduce the bug in gnome-PackageKit then the fault is probably on the backend, otherwise it can be in the GUI.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
